Growing up, one of my musical heroes was a Gospel singer named Dave Boyer. He was a big band singer and crooner working the Jersey Shore under the name Joey Stevens. He was the son of a preacher but had walked away from the Lord. While finding success as a singer (he performed with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin), his life spiraled out of control with booze and drugs. He lost everything, including his career and marriage.
